Covers and Solicitations for SSSM#11 and FCBD’14 Released

Two more comics are coming out for the Spring period, and one particular story stands out.

First up, from Midtown Comics, we get a first look at Sonic Super Special Magazine #11. Amongst the various features and articles that the magazines usually come with, there is also an “encore presentation” of the currently running Countdown to Chaos arc (which will likely be highlights). The one feature likely of interest to everyone is Sonic Comic Origins, as this comic strip forms the magazine’s new content.

    1. THAT is why I don’t like Yardley that much. Spaz or Bates should’ve done that Sonic cover.

  1. y u no let us register Sonic Stadium!? I want to be able to NOT have to go through the annoying process of typing in name and email.

  2. Jezz, is Sonic’s appearence really the only thing you guys can say about this? Am I the only one that even mentions how great X, Zero, and Vile look?
    No wonder the Mega Man and Sonic cross-over sucked.

    1. What? What are you talking about? The crossover was great! And yeah, the Mega Man X characters look really cool, I just hope that they have a good explanation for their place in the comics.
